If you even think you might want to sell your home, here are 5 things you can do now to get the jump on the season. 1.Make an honest assessment of the condition of your house. You’ve been looking at your house every day for years now. You probably walk by items that need addressing every day but you never even notice. Trust me, though, your buyers will.Look at the MLS of houses in your area. If you can, go to Open Houses in your neighborhood. Finally, grab your camera and take photos of your house. Take one of every room from each doorway. Upload these to your computer and sit back and take a look. 2.Hire the best agent in your are...

Home Prices in Delray Beach Florida for June 2017   Real estate market data for Delray Beach, FL provided by Elyse Berman of Realty Associates Florida Properties.   We saw some interesting things happen on both listing and closed sales in  June.  Overall, prices were down in Delray Beach.  Like the prior month, there was a decrease in single family home prices in Delray Beach FL  and the price per square foot declined, as well.   The closed prices of condos, villas and townhouses also decreased, along with price per square foot.    You can still get good deal on homes in Delray Beach, but  having a good real estate agent who understands the market is a must. Don’t wait on the sidelines for too long.

 Life takes us in many directions and some days don’t go as planned. Have discovered that one of the keys of life is to be flexible. That’s how miracles happen!Today Mom and I took an unanticipated excursion to downtown Delray Beach. We are walking towards Atlantic Avenue as a dog races past us .Not just any dog… a large pit bull that was frantic and going in no particular direction. A car drives up alongside us, pulls down his window and asks me to please catch the dog. It was not his but he wanted to help.Without hesitation, I started running and thankfully was not wearing high heels! I am coaxing the dog towards the nearest place where I could get some assistance.Up ahead was DADA restaurant. In the back parking lot, I asked for water as the dog seemed thirsty and starving and would ...

Moving from a renter to buyer in the Delray Beach luxury homes market can be exciting! Owning your own piece of Delray Beach real estate property will definitely change your lifestyle – hopefully for the better.But before diving into homeownership you may want to think about the advantages and disadvantages you will be taking on when purchasing homes for sale in Delray Beach. There are tax benefits and you will be adding to your own personal wealth as principal is paid off on the home loan. However, you may have less spending cash at the end of each month if your goal is to build up home equity. Learn more by visiting Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty website.
